    Notes: All of the supplements I’m taking I’ve been on for at least a month. I know how they feel and will easily be able to perceive any changes in performance or body composition that may be caused by the X-Factor. I have cut out high dose monounsaturated fats as well as fish oil as they can interefere with X-Factor. No antiinflammatorys will be used during test because they too can interefere. I will update this log every week.


    Workout: My workouts vary day to day but the usual schedule is day1 upper body, day2 off, day3 lower body, day4 off and repeat.

    Started first dose of X-Factor today.


  2. Best of luck. Bill Llewellyn believes strongly in this product(unique idea in my opinion in a good sense). I hope it works well for you and everybody else.

    Molecular Nutrition not Legal Gear. Find some more info at www.bodyofscience.com

  5. Ah, I was thinking of Product X by Legal Gear, I would like to see some reviews on that too, havent really seen any though.

  6. Hey bro,
    Im on my 3rd bottle of X-Factor. And still nothing. I take 6 to 8 caps a day. where did you see that you should not take fish oil with it?? That might be whats wrong. I take it with fish oil, Flax oil, and CLA. Let me know were to find that info on fish oil please!! Thank you, Harleyc

    You should email or contact Bill Llewellyn for full information. Put simply, X-Factor is pro-inflammatory and Omega 3's are anti-inflammatory, therefore using the two together is limiting X-factor's potential.

    Yes, taking any kind of oil (fish, flax, olive, etc) or medicine (aspirin, ibuprofen, etc) that will reduce inflammation will counter act the X-Factor.

    I know that many on this board don't like bodybuilding.com (for many good reasons) but that is where Bill L. spends alot of time answering questions. There are a few threads there on this and he will answer PM's, it may take a day or two for him to get back to you. According to him, to get the most out of this product, don't take CLA, Flax, Olive Oil or Fish oils.

    This sems like such a bizarre supp to me b/c everything else--creatine, glutamine (arguably), BCAAs, whey, etc--all help with recovery. This stuff actually increases inflammation. What a weird concept.

    I read this in a bb.com thread about XFactor. I believe Bill L. himself says not to take it with flax, etc in the thread. I believe it was someone named ghostface killer (not to be confused w/Wu-member extraordinaire) who ran the log.

  12. Well, X-factor is more than just pro inflammatory. It is a complicated process but is based around the fact the arachidonic acid (AA) is the precursor to eicosanoids. Eicosanoids are very powerful hormones. AA also increases AR density so it would be useful to take when on a cycle. I am very excited about this trial.

  13. And yeah, I hate the BB.com forums too. It's too bad so many good minds hang out there because the majority of members are complete ass holes. Everything is so cliquey over there and it causes much misinformation. If only people like patrick arnold, llewellyn, and some of teh Avant guys would hang here more often. Doesn't matter though, we got some smart motha ****as in this house.

    I can confirm this.

    actuly X-factor is aimed for raising prostaglandins, spificly PGF-2a, and PGE-1, not eicosanoids. although eicosanoids are raised from AA.

  17. Hey guys,
    Thank you so much for the info. It helps alot. Im going to stop all my oils for now. I'll let you know how it works. Thanks again, Harleyc

  18. hey, i'm doing the trial too. i started on 2/14. so far i've noticed quite a bit of the soreness, almost feels like i'm catching a cold. i've also been getting better pumps from my upper body and calf workouts, not so much in the quads or hams though.

    i spend quite a bit of time on this forum, the threads are so much better to read than bb.com's, it's easier to pick up information without all of the flames... thanks! chris

  19. Ya bro,
    Im sore all the time. Espically my biceps.
    I don't know if it is from this product or not but I'm up 7lbs from last week.
    Its been a week since I stopped taking the wrong stuff. Anti inflamatory's!!
    I wait till next week to find out. Good luck with the X-Factor bro, Harleyc

  20. ***UPDATE***
    2/21/05


    Well, I’m going to refrain from acting too excited. I have noticed what could be a slight increase in soreness OR just extra soreness from having hella good workouts. In some cases though, I get sore within hours after my workout which is something I never used to get. Maybe I’m just being extra aware of soreness though because of the nature of AA. My muscles seem to feel more solid, but that’s probably because I’m super hydrated and have been carrying these permanent mini-pumps all day. Just to be on the safe side, I’m going to assume that no changes have taken place yet as a result of using AA.

    I’ve also changed my diet. I’ve stopped drinking all milk and started eating raw eggs. Call it a hunch. My protein intake will stay the same (getting more from beef and chicken).

  21. Not to take away from your log, but what is so new to X-Factor. Is this not just like Adonis X from Syntrax? Why is there so much talk about a product that has already been brought to the market?

  22. Because now that PH's are gone, Molecular Nutrition (the patent holders for AA supplementation) are really trying to spread the word. Llewellyn stands by X-Factor 100% and doesn't understand why more people haven't tried it since it supposedly gives great results.

    BTW, Adonis-X is a copy of X-Factor.

  23. **UPDATE***
    2/22/05

    When I take X-factor pre-workout I get insane pumps. I mean, brutal. I’ve also been getting very intense pumps when I go running; they become downright painful in my upper thighs and lower back.


    Okay, I guess that was more of a mini-update.

    I stop in here from time to time, and agree - good forum here guys. Wish I had the time to hang out on the boards more in general, as I'd definitely be a regular here if I could. I love to answer questions about my work..

    I'll try to keep checking this thread though, since I know you guys are talking aboiut it. If any of you have specific questions - please fire away.

  28. ***UPDATE***

    2/27/05
    My muscles feel fuller, thicker. I don’t think I’ve gotten stronger beyond what is normal but I definitely have extra intensity when working out. Soreness is still up from what I'm used to getting. For now I can say that I definitely am noticing that I'm "on" something. Since this is still only the closing of the second week of usage I suspect that the real effects will begin to show themselves in the coming days of week 3. I’ll give an update of weight and measurements at the end of week 3. Until then, here is a sample of my workout routines and diet.


    Upper body:
    4xfailure Lean-In Dips
    2xfailure Wide Grip Pullups
    2xfailure Neutral Grip Pullups
    3x8-10 Barbell Row/Machine Row/1 arm row
    3x6-10 Clean and press
    2xfailure Cleans
    2x6-10 dumbbell bench press
    2x6-10 Incline Dumbbell curl
    1x10 angled barbell curl
    1x10 Triceps pressdown/overhead press


    Lower Body:
    7x3-15 Barbell Squats
    3x3-10 Deadlifts
    2x10-12 Travelling lunges w/dumbbells
    1x10 1-leg Calf raise w/dumbbell
    3x15 1-leg elevated calf raise alternating/no rest
    (sometimes I’ll use a leg curl machine, squat press machine, or angled calf raise machine in this workout)


    Sample Diet:

    Meal 1—
    1 scoop whey protein
    2 raw eggs
    2 T natural fruit jam
    1 banana
    1/4 C blueberries

    Meal 2—
    Chicken Breast
    Large salad w/field greens and mushrooms, vinaigrette

    Meal 3—
    2 slices Sprouted grain bread
    Cooked ground beef in tomato sauce

    Meal 4—
    1 Apple
    1 scoop WPI
    Almonds and Pumpkin seeds, raw

    Meal 5—
    1 scoop whey protein
    2 raw eggs
    2 T natural peanut butter
    1 heaping teaspoon cacao

    Meal 6—
    2 slices Sprouted grain bread
    Cooked ground beef in tomato sauce
    Large salad w/field greens and mushrooms, vinaigrette


    Add to this food the occasional grazing on other fruits, veggies, and nuts as well as the occasional 80% cacao chocolate bar. Also keep in mind that the beef I use is NOT lean.

  29. Have you had any noticeable gains to this point?

  30. I don't want to jump the gun so I'm not going to speak of any "gains" till week three.

    Just a little update, I have begun supplementing with organic blachstrap molasses and organic, raw apple cider vinegar. Natural food supplements are the bee's knees.
